Roberto Romanello is the latest name on the 2010 British poker roll of honour after winning the PokerStars EPT Prague Main Event.
The Welshman, who sported a lucky grey wig throughout the six-day event, outlasted a field of 563 players to pocket a €640,000 first prize. Romanello was visibly moved by the victory, trying vainly to hold back tears after eventually sealing the win against Italy's Emiliano Bono. The 34-year-old has come close to EPT glory before, finishing sixth in Copenhagen last year and making the money at this year's Barcelona event. “I’ve been trying to do this for a very long time,” he said. “This means everything to me. I feel ecstatic”.Romanello's win was the fifth by a UK player in 13 EPT events this year. Add to this five WSOP bracelets and 2010 really can be called the year of the Brit.The final table positions and payouts were as follows:1 Roberto Romanello Wales €640,0002 Emiliano Bono Italy €435,0003 Marcin Horecki Poland €247,0004 Peter Skripka Russia €163,0005 Marco Leonzio Italy €130,0006 Jan Bendik Slovakia €100,0007 Manuel Bevand France €71,0008 Roberto Nulli Italy €54,550Image courtesy of the PokerStars blog.Keep up to date with all the news from the poker world by following us on Twitter and Facebook.
